Room Reservations for Meetings

Meetings are gatherings that do not require assistance from another department (such as housekeeping, media services, catering, etc.). Faculty and staff may send an Outlook calendar meeting request directly to a room to reserve that room. Please send the request to the room first and do not include the attendees. Your Outlook request will be reviewed and accepted by the Events Office; please do not consider your meeting request confirmed until it is accepted through Outlook. Once you receive the confirmation message, you may then invite your attendees. Please make sure you have your settings to where you can receive a confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation message within 48 hours, please call or e-mail Events as we may not have received the request. If you request  a room the same day of your meeting (within a 24 hour period), please call or e-mail Events so we know to look for it.

Students may request meetings here: Meeting Request Form

Please wait for confirmation of your meeting request before notifying your group of the meeting time and location! Your request will be confirmed within one business day. Requests must be made a minimum of two business days prior to the meeting date to ensure confirmation within one business day.

Library study rooms are available for study groups; visit the circulation desk to reserve a room. Classrooms may not be reserved for study sessions or for take-home exams.
